Kyushu Electric Power Co. is making final adjustments to its plan to promote Vice President Michiaki Uriu to president of the scandal-hit utility, according to company sources.

Uriu, 62, will replace President Toshio Manabe, 66, who will resign to take responsibility over an e-mail campaign to manipulate public opinion in favor of restarting reactors at the company’s Genkai nuclear power plant in Saga Prefecture, the sources said.

Chairman Shingo Matsuo, 73, will also step down to become adviser, with Vice President Masayoshi Nuki expected to fill the post vacated by Matsuo.
